o.k., after much delay and being tired of dosing the pool every other day with MA, because of my SWG, I bit the dust and installed Pentair's IntelliPH. My pool contractor tried to steer me toward the IntelliChem, but for my application, that seemed a bit overboard with functionality and price. Many thanks to some member research on TFP(thanks for all the info) and pics furnished by aholmes5 (Thanks a bunch!), I contacted my local pool store and they said they could order and install. They shot me a price(which I liked) so we did the deal. One exception, I wanted a "T" fitting(Input from TFP's "aholmes5") for the injector vs. the saddle clamp that comes with the unit. Due to space limitations on my plumbing at the SWG, the install was done vertically vs. horizontally (see pics). So far so good.
Day 1. PH holding at 7.6 with a 35% MA dispense setting.
Day 2. PH at 7.7 - Increased dispense rate to 40% - Not increasing as fast as without IntelliPH
If this device holds true, I'm going to be one happy camper....uhhh pool owner. Will keep this post updated over the next week or so on progress/changes.
